Titles with dirty words in them often wind up on bestseller lists according to a short item in the Authors Guild Bulletin, Spring 2012. In 2005, there was On Bullshit. Then followed Shit My Dad Says. In 2010 there was Assholes and in November Tucker Max wrote a sequel, Assholes Finish First. It made the trade paperback bestseller list, but not in the No. 1 slot.
About On Writing and Publishing
On Writing and Publishing will address PCV and RPCV questions on what to write, how to write, and how to get published with practical and clear (non-academic) prose. I will help you decide on how to tell your Peace Corps story, as well as, other tales that you would like to tell. The blog will also provide information on editors, agents, and what magazines and publishing houses might consider your writings. — John Coyne (1962–64)
